Bikram Challenge Day 15
Monday, April 06, 2009
So I signed up for the 60 day Bikram Challenge at my studio. I did a similar challenge last year around this same time except I ended up going for 90 days. It's such a great way for me to get back into the healthy swing of things.
Today my back bend in half-moon was amazing! I don't remember much other than I wasn't thinking of anything till the instructor called me out, and when I realized where I was, I was looking and pointing at the floor behind me! Great way to start the class. Unfortunately the same can't be said for my balancing series. I sprained my ankle in December. In yoga I've noticed a dull aching pain coming back and I know you work out old injuries, but I also went for a little hike at lunch today and I think I twisted it in a weird way. Needless to say I had no strength thus no balance in my left leg. All in all it was a pretty decent class. Pain in my ankle, hips and sides of my lower back. Just want to document to see where it all moves to. Seems last time I did this I would have weird pains and the next week they would be somewhere else.
Also I'm beginning to track my nutrition again. All the working out in the world won't help if I'm not aware of what I'm putting in my mouth. Calories in, calories out, right?
Hoping to stop picking myself apart in the mirror and trying to STAY OFF the scale!!!! Change is slow, I don't know why my brain keeps thinking I'm going to see instant results. Frustrating but not impossible to move past...
